As one essay here places the rising young Dutch artist Sara van der Heide and her work, she “is a painter of the visual culture, an artist who has seen much more in the form of newspaper photos, television images and films than she has experienced firsthand. With obvious pleasure she creates a world of painting that enables viewers to see in a chaos of different ways. A very promising sketch, an indescribable blend of colors, an unexpected texture after the paint is wiped away.” Penumbra offers readers van der Heide’s expressive and unabashedly luscious drawings and paintings, including many in egg tempera and other old-school techniques, and examines her comparatively contemporary subjects, from terror to pop culture.
